Dating =/= Relationship. Dating is an official way of getting to know each other at a romantic level. It is to see if there is anything more to the initial interest. Usually you can date as many people as you want. A relationship is when you have gotten to know each other and agreed that you two will now be officially together I.e the interest is has become more. When you feel that you have gotten to know someone well enough and you are romantically ready for a partnership you sit them down and have a conversation about becoming exclusive I.e. Girlfriend and boyfriend.
The best method of founding out is just to tell them that you really like them a lot and would like to make things official. This is your happiness here and ambiguity is unnecessary. You are an adult and it is important to tell people how you feel. If they don't feel the same the so be it, but don't frustrate yourself by being very indirect as miscommunication is one of the biggest reasons why relationships don't work. If you can't sit down and tell a potential boyfriend that you like him enough to be in a relationship then you are wasting your time1
